Justin Turner: The One That Got Away

On December 2nd, 2013 the Mets made a decision that looms large on their current roster when they decided to non-tender Justin Turner. At the time, Turner was coming off arguably his most productive season as he set a career high in WAR at 0.8 and OPS+ at 100 despite getting only 200 at-bats while playing seven different positions. The move to cut a valuable utility infielder who...

Alderson Characterizes Trade Market As Thin, But Willing To Overpay

During this afternoon’s press conference at Citi Field, Sandy Alderson said he continues to look externally to find some help for the offense. “I would characterize us as somewhat aggressive. I’m prepared to overpay but there has to be something to overpay for.” It sounds like the team has only enough resources to add one player, so they want to be sure it’s someone that...

Duda And Cuddyer Are Struggling To Produce

During the just concluded Mets road trip that included a seven game losing streak, the team received very poor production from Lucas Duda or Michael Cuddyer. While many of the lineup’s struggles could be blamed on injuries, the middle of the order is simply failing to step up during the absences of David Wright and Daniel Murphy. Lucas Duda is batting .120 over the last eight...

It’s Time For The Mets To Define The Moment

Ah yes, that wonderful time of the year when every Mets fan who has been waiting for this team to fail can pop out of their hole and hold up their “I told you so!” sign. It’s truly one of my favorite times of the year because you see and hear almost the same argument – but with no clear solution to the problems they point to. “The Mets should have made a trade already...

The Elusive Silver Lining To Recent Mets Tumble

On Wednesday, I took to twitter and ranted out some brief frustrations following another brutal loss. In the Mets world of nosediving back into irrelevance, the Twitter-verse was ablaze with angry fans whose fingers collectively pointed at a lethargic ownership and their unwillingness to change even a single thing about this team. It got me wondering… Is this what we’ve needed...

Mets Are Back At Ground Zero

I thought it was interesting listening to Andy Martino on Daily News Live on Thursday, who essentially said the Mets have lost all their gains and all the cushion they had from their 11-game winning streak. “Once the Mets had that streak I thought it was enough of an over-performance to get to 87 wins and a wild card.” “You know what they just did during this road trip?
